Sandcrawler PSA: How Not To Defect To Cuba

Gets an A for effort! At least she tried.

“On January 6, crew members at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport requested assistance from local law enforcement after a customer was denied boarding for indications of intoxication and became disruptive,” a spokesperson from JetBlue Corporate Communications says.

The resulting hysteria was caught on camera where the woman was heard screaming at staff and seen hoisting herself up onto the JetBlue counter.

“Who does that to a woman like me?” she screamed, before continuing to yell, “Get me out of here.”

It became even worse when she called the male staff member a “rapist” and threatened that she had a gun on her, claiming that she was homeless. Moments later, she grabbed her bag and walked off while other passengers whispered about her threats.

The lesson here, never try.

2 1. She was flying Jet Blue. They're some of the worst airlines in existence. European readers may think of it as the RyanAir of the US.

2. This is why you fly with contingency funds. If one air carrier is having too many problems, ditch them and their ticket and then go buy a ticket from a reputable airline.

3. For most destinations in the Continental US, it is possible to fly or charter your own airplane for the cost of first class airfare. Doing that removes a lot of the hassle of going through insane public airliner hell. Furthermore, you get to do it on YOUR schedule.

4. She's tired and probably quite drunk. I know I would be.

3 She had just spent 20 hours because she had been bumped off her flight from 20 hours before. What else is there to do at the airport?
